Symptoms of a Gallbladder Problem

Queasiness and vomiting when the stomach is full. In the initial stages, a gallbladder problem will manifest as queasiness and nausea – this will be very persistent, and may lead to actual vomiting, usually just after you have eaten. This may be the body’s way of providing relief, as many people suffering from this condition find that it helps with the gas, indigestion and stomach issues associated with gallbladder attacks. However, as the condition worsens, the person will develop fevers when the attacks of vomiting occur.

Severe issues with the digestive tract. Flatulence and problems with queasiness and vomiting, as well as discomfort in the abdomen, are common symptoms of a gallbladder attack. However, there are a great number of ailments that can cause these symptoms. As the condition progresses, however, these relatively mundane symptoms escalate into intense vomiting and severe indigestion that eventually leads to diarrhea. If these symptoms are accompanied by intense pain to the right of the abdomen it is a relatively definite indicator of a gallbladder attack and a visit to your physician is strongly advised.

Lack of appetite. Gallbladder attacks can make eating a traumatic experience – taking in a major meal fraught with feelings of nausea, and even outright vomiting directly after the meal. In an infection that remains untreated, bile from the bile duct can be prevented from entering the digestive tract completely, almost entirely disrupting the digestive process. Issues with the gallbladder are far more pronounced in people whose immune systems have been compromised.
